Smiley Face - DVD Review

SMILEY FACE (*1/2) - Starring Anna Faris, John Krasinski, Danny Masterson, Adam Brody, Jane Lynch, John Cho, Marion Ross, Michael Hitchcock, Danny Trejo, Rick Hoffman and Roscoe Lee Browne. Directed by Gregg Araki.

Anna Faris gives a tour-de-force performance in an otherwise big waste of time as a girl who's stoned the entire movie. This movie might be funny for people who've been high on pot, but I never have been, and this movie was pretty much about as fun as hanging out with someone who's stoned and owes you money you know you'll never see.

My interest also picked up a tiny bit when The Office's John Krasinski showed up as a nerd who has a crush on her, but those ten minutes do not make this thing worth it. I'd heard this was a hit at a couple film festivals, but maybe it was a hit with stoners who went to film festivals.
